Issue Date2002
DescriptionOne element of the CIVCAL project Web-based resources containing images, tables, texts and associated data of the Engineering Materials such as concrete, metals and wood. Portland Cement Concrete is a particulate composite consisting of a continuous binder phase, the cementitious matrix and a dispersed particulate phase, the aggregates. Metals as construction material are an important construction material. They possess characteristics such as strength, stiffness, toughness and ductility that are very desirable in construction. Wood is a naturally occurring material, therefore, it is probably the oldest structural building material, and because of its relative ease of production and handling, it was until fairly recently the most widely used building material.
Civil Engineering, construction, geotechnical, building site
1. Teachers can draw examples and illustrative material for lectures and demonstration. 2. Students can use the web-site for research and project work.
All required plug-in downloadable from the site
Designed for undergradute Civil and Building Engineering students.
To enhance the learning and teaching of Civil and Building Engineering through ready access to virtual experiences on a variety of construction sites.
1. To enable virtual site visits. 2. To provide multi-media enhancement of teaching and learning material. 3. To provide supplementary material for courses in Civil and Building Engineering. 4. To provide resource material for students conducting independent studies.
